Letter from Germany: ASKING MYSELF

Dear holy Guru

My sincere thanks for teaching the Dharma and the translation. For my understanding, practicing the recitation of Buddha’s teaching is the key. We come to this world empty-handed, and we leave this world empty-handed. In this sense, we can practice the Dharma properly. Our parents our schools and much more taught us values. We learned how to suffer. We judged and condemned because our fears were our values. Our ego grew bigger. We became blind and felt that we were carrying all of this within ourselves. We wanted to be free from suffering. The Dharma taught me to think about my values ​​so far. I began to recite and I questioned my values. The Dharma helped me find my inner balance again. What is a real treasure? They are the Dharma who guide me. The true values ​​are in each of us. We have to complete them through proper meditation by acquiring knowledge and reciting. The recognition of the four noble truths. Everyone can learn the Dharma. We have received the foundations and only if we make them our center we will succeed. If we run with a broken container to the well to bring water, we will be unsuccessful. May the teachings of Buddha reach the whole world May all beings be free from suffering. May you be a blessed Guru with health

    Dear Tantra Mikaya,
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. It’s great that in this life we have a precious chance living with human life, especially to believe in Buddha’s teachings, and now we meet a Guru who guide us the way to be free from suffering. So if we miss this great chance of this life, we really don’t know when and how to find this again. I agree with you that we should be diligent but shouldn’t learn Dharma with “a broken container”.
    Hope that we can share more in chanhtuduy.com.
    May our Guru and his consort live long for the benefit of all sentient beings.
     
    May all sentient beings never return emty-handed from a land rich in precious gems!

  3. Dear Tantra Mikaya,

    It’s great to know your appreciation of Buddhist Dharma value, specifically the Tibetan Buddhism we are following. Unlike ordinary yoga, Tibetan Yoga or Tibetan Buddhism has both meditative and spiritual benefits. Practicing Tibetan Yoga will help us readjust our body, speech and mind in the right orbit of Dharma or in other words, a transformation of our mind. And when our mind is transformed, we will be less and no longer mentally attached or craved to things or phenomena. This will bring back our inner balance as you said. It’s not by chance the Sutra on the Eight Realizations of Great Beings stressed that: “Always satisfy with what we have; peaceful with poverty and uphold the Dharma; wisdom is the only concern.” The Indian Master Tilopa also said: “The problem is not enjoyment but the attachment.” Of course, you need refuge in a real (authentic) Guru if you want to get a true inner balance because without him, you and I will never know boundless and profound meanings of the Buddha’s teachings though living for hundreds or thousands of kalpas. Thanks for your great comment.

    May the Guru and his consort live long the sake of sentient beings.
    May Tantra Mikaya achieve legitimate wishes and get progress in the path of cultivation
    May all sentient beings be enlightened by the Buddha’s wisdom.
    Om Ah Hum

  4. Dear Tantra Mikaya,

    I am happy to read your sharing. I agree with you that Dharma heps us get the inner balance. Moreover, the true Guru is necessary for those people who want to follow the spiritual path. “When the Guru gives advice, then all the Buddhas give advice, and when the Guru gives teachings, that is all the Buddhas’ action. So you have to always think that way and respect the Guru that way.” said Lama Zopa. 

    It is important for us to have the right attitude towards learning from the Guru. As you wrote: “if we run with a broken container to well to bring water, we will be unsuccessful”. If we read and listen to the Guru’s sermons with the attitude of “broken container”, we will get nothing and then we continue wandering in samsara filled with sufferings.

    It is great that you treasure the Guru’s teachings and Dharma values. I am delighted with your diligence of reading, thinking and writing. I am looking forward to reading your sharing more. Thank you so much for your comment.

    May the Guru and his consort live long for the benefit of all sentient beings

    May Tantra Mikaya attain all legitimate wishes and have the joy that arises from making progress on a clear and structured path that leads to full enlightenment.

    May all sentient beings achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.
